One Tiny Turtle

By Nicola Davies

Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Walker Books 2001

Loggerhead Turtles are very mysterious. They disappear for years, and then suddenly turn up on the beach where they were born.

This book was fun to paint because so much of the action takes place under water. The pictures had to be very accurate, so I repainted a few things when the Scientific Advisor spotted some mistakes. Phew!
